Schemes and nuances of knitting in the technique of Irish lace crochet, advice and recommendations for work.
Crochet-style crochet in Irish stylelace about two centuries. The founder considers the Irish nobleman Riego de Blancardier. She owns the idea, which was a lighter version of the much more laborious Venetian lace, created with the help of needles and bobbins. In the 40's of the 19 th century, Mademoiselle de Blancardier publishes the first book with patterns of patterns by crocheting its product samples. In essence, this kind of work by hook is the creation of a cloth, which is knitted with thin threads of individual small motifs, and then they are combined into the whole composition. Most believe that creating their own hands a magnificent lace and elegant product in the technique of Irish lace can only be done by very skillful masters. However, it is worth considering - to tie a small flower or leaf, and the motifs in the Irish lace crochet are mostly vegetable in nature, maybe even a beginner, but the combination of all elements into a single whole is just patience + time. Looking at the finished openwork, original and unique product, it will be immediately clear that the result is worth the effort. There is, in the performance of things with the help of this technique, a very pleasant moment - the layout of the motifs will fully correspond to the fantasies and ideas of the needlewoman. The product is actually quite unique and unique. An important part of knitting in Irish techniqueLace crocheted is the joining parts in a single canvas. The easiest and easiest way is to sew ready-made motifs on the tulle foundation. If you knit very thin threads and a crochet of the appropriate size, then you can use a nylon tulle for the base. Another way to link elements is to add one, in the process of knitting the last row, to the next. The use of this method is suitable for assembling large elements, it is possible to attach smaller details to them as a connecting part. The same way is convenient if you want to combine small compositions from small motifs. A small complexity of this method is the need, in advance very clearly imagine a finished picture of the product. A more laced version will be to sew motifs on a pre-linked mesh net, or to connect elements using a mesh with an irregular size of cells. This is the most common way of assembling the finished fabric. And, probably, the most successful. Different in size cells, connected in different directions, it is very convenient to fill empty places of the canvas, this grid "flows around" the motifs, and the entire pattern looks more organically and holistically. Closely located motifs can also be stitched with a needle. For those who make the first steps in knitting thingson the technique of Irish lace, the creation of a whole product will be a difficult task. It is better to begin with a small one, for example, from the finishing of various products with inserts connected in this technique. A small strip on the bottom of the skirt or collar of the shirt, made by Irish crochet crochet, will make the thing unique and exquisite. Before you start knitting, follow very carefully to think and make a pattern. It should be full-sized, take into account all darts, in general it should be built according to the strictest sewing rules. If the sewing structures are not the hobby of the needlewoman, it is possible to take as a basis an old, well-seated product that will not grind on the part, or order a pattern from professionals (it will undoubtedly be useful not only for this case). Make it the best of dense fabric, so it will be more convenient to perform manipulations on the preliminary layout of parts. If knitting goes fantasy, and not copying the finished product, then do not immediately make a lot of details, it is better to tie a few and find the most successful combination of them. It is the process of finding the ideal arrangement of motives and will be - Creativity. It happens that the motives themselves look elegant and look great singly, and in the composition they seem to "turn pale", while ordinary and ordinary, at first glance, leaves and flowers, combined with the imagination of the master, "will play". Another important aspect of manufacturing products inthe technique of Irish lace is assembly. Often the motifs are attached inverted upwards, so it is more convenient to attach them with a grid or sew. In the latter case, it is necessary to make stitches as little as possible, this is one of the main rules. Filling one piece of pattern, you can proceed to the next, there is one nuance - the place of joining parts, for example, back and shelf. If a piece of paper or a flower goes slightly beyond the boundaries of the shoulder or side seam, it is even better - the second part must be arranged already taking into account this piece of the fragment. When joining motifs is performed by a grid with irregular cells it is important to know - it does not have a wrong side and face, and there are no unambiguous recommendations for its untying. In the process of creating the product, each master will have its own unique way of joining the parts. It can include several different options, most importantly, that the product looked harmonious. It is important that the mesh is not too loose, it is better to tie it tighter, and in order for the elements to be more prominent, they can be tied up using a "pacing step". An important role in the products of the Irish lace crochet is the color solution and texture of the yarn. If there is any doubt about the selection of the color combination, you can safely choose one shade. "Ireland" in one tone is always a win, and if you use yarn with different texture, this will give additional relief and expressiveness of the finished item. If you want something brighter, you can choose, for example, yarn sectional dyeing (no more than 2 shades). Color matching is very important. It is not necessary to pull out colorful remains from knitting, knitting may simply not be enough for a certain color, and even the beginners in needlework know that the same color in different parties may differ in shade from the same producer. Crochet masters advise the elementsproducts assembled from several motifs, before a general assembly, moisten a little and steam off (do not iron), until the final arrangement of the entire canvas. The details of the processing may vary slightly in size, which must be taken into account when fully assembled. It's important not to be afraid to experiment and listen to what the creative string tells you. Below are a few schemes with motifs in the technique of Irish crochet crochet.
